That I have been just a LITTLE cranky madmad well I have been beyond B#$%^y blush these past 3-4 months due mostly to my job that I LOVED for 4 years and not so much now. Well my husband (God love him for puttin up with me whistle)has "suggested" I quit. Well so be it for me to argue (yea right) So I took his suggestion and gave my notice for 8/28/08. I got quite ILL sick when I told them and am horrified at the thought of not working, BUT I never get to see my children cry or him (from working overnight) so that alone makes it better. I'am seriously considering photography. My daughter is in college for cosmatology and wants to work with me doing glamour shots and she also does some pretty REALLY scary stuff with makeup.(I'll try to post some of her work) So PLEASE wish me luck I have a couple months to figure out if I can do this or go back to work elsewhere.

Here is my sweet wonderful yet questionable daughter and her friends. She used both makeup and photoshop. The first 3 are of her. They look creepy but all are good kids that are starting college this fall. Her short term goal is to be a make up artist for Universal Studios, and her dream is to do movie makeup

Wow DeeDee! Congratulations!! I'm so happy for you! My last day of my current job is done on that day too!!! Change is sooo stressful isn't it? My husband has been supportive of my decisions as well. I couldn't do this without him!!

Good luck at photography DeeDee! You know we only have one life to live. We gotta change things if we aren't happy. My ex taught me that one. winkgrin

These pics are just crazy!! VERY ARTISTIC THOUGH! I really enjoy the stitched up one and the monster looking guy 2nd from the bottom. I'm sure she has to have all sorts of different things in her portfolio and I suppose some are assignments from her instructor too? Good for both of you gals!! laughlaugh

I have no idea how long it took. I didnt even know she was doing it until I seen the pictures on my computer.

One guy did go out with it on but he's not posted.

The pointed ears, nose and chin was the photoshop

lisa - my sister has been after me to try this and my whole family has been after me to quit my job. Acording to my sister, she says if you cut your hair or get your nails done. Things will change for the better. (she's a very positive person) So I think after my last day I will cut cry my hair, change the color, get my nails even toe nails done, buy a new outfit and if she's right I should win the lottery! laughlaugh

My sister is fantastic! Both of them but the oldest is pretty much one of a kind. Used to get the nails done all the time for the last job. I had alot of people looking at my hands. Never had my toe nails done but hear its the greatest thing because they put you in a masaging chair and they massage your feet and calves (make sure you shave) and make your toes looks really pretty for sandals. (dont usually let people see my feet)

My hair is brown I dont know what color to change it to. It is just past the mid back area. Its was to my bottom but I went for a "trim" and it ended up being a 6 inch trim. I've not had short hair since the first grade when my "mommy" traumatised me with a boy cut. I think thats why all my life since then I have had long hair.

My mom got my hair chopped when I was 4 and I really did look like a bubble eyed little boy! We have similiar stories. I have 3 sisters and each one is absolutely different from the next. I love my sisters. They are good women. I just wished they'd fish more. wink Let us know what color you pick. I just keep going blonder and blonder. smile

I was considering a much lighter maybe golden brown, to "hide" the other color.

My hair is also CURLY! I'm afraid to get it cut. I dont want to look like Shirly Temple.

hmmmm maybe I should just change the color and not cut it.

    • Dave, if this many folks are not understanding the question, than maybe the question is unclear.  So rather then rant about it perhaps try rephrasing it.
    •     I believe you said it was "libertarian" drivel, actually, so you dismissed it out of hand...          
    •   You posted about neither.     But if you would read the article, my commentary and TJ's commentary you would know that's not really what the article is about.     You have to be kidding, right? Just about everyone who has an opinion on politics at all is this sort of person. Do you look at social media at all?
    •     Ok, now getting back to whether Trump will win the War on Drugs, do you think he will take any steps at all to decriminalize drugs, such as reclassifying marijuana, and recognizing state laws and programs designed to move towards the decriminalization of drugs?   Or do you think he will take steps to protect vested interests, such as prisons and the pharmaceutical. industry?   Just going off his rhetoric and his choice for a drug czar, I'm guessing he much prefers the latter, and will end up spending a bunch of taxpayer's money, and actually lose ground by continuing on with the brute force/criminalization approach.        
    • Because at the time, I don't have anything better to do.   I posted about the article, and you wanted to talk about the topic.  I posted about the topic and you want to discuss the article.    Which is it?     I support a particular candidate because their positions, taken as a whole, are preferable to me as compared to the other candidate(s).   In a few years I get to do it over.     I don't think there are really that many ardent "rah rah for my party" type folks out there, in spite of what we see on TV, or the occasional people we meet.     So the article is basically drivel, as I said before, based on a false premise.   
    • Borch I just signed up Ryan, Morgan, and me but I only see my name listed in the summary. Do my kids not show up because they don't have hso usernames?  Or did I not enter it right?     Please let me know how to fix it and I'll do so.  Thanks!
    •   Because I think self reflection is good for all of us from time to time.   If you don't wan't to discuss this article, why do you persist in posting here?           No one is disputing that at all. The premise of the author's article is in regards to the hypocrisy of then justifying everything your chosen candidate or party does blindly while vilifying the other candidates or party. It's the "all in" sports like mentality that is being discussed here.  
    • There is a really excellent book called "The Righteous Mind" that approaches this tribalist mindset from an evolutionary psychology standpoint. The author, Jonathan Haidt, does a remarkable job of unpacking why people persist in truly irrational defense of the indefensible - when it's their team doing the stupid stuff. I highly highly highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in lessening the hyperpartisan idiocy we have today.

      The trouble is that the closed-off mindset that lends itself to reflexive support for Obama/Hillary/Trump/whomever also tends to preclude any serious engagement in self-examination that the book is designed to provoke. Really good read, though.
    •   I get what your saying here but I think what Dave is talking about is the willingness of some to blindly follow, without question, their party or candidate. I saw this first hand during the primary with some of my own relatives, for example. I had a SIL who was a huge Bernie backer. The things she said about Hillary were worse than anything said here. As far as she was concerned, Hillary should be tarred and feathered and ran out on a rail. Then Bernie loses the nomination. She then became Hillary's biggest defender. Everything she said about her during the primary was instantly washed away. Even her own husband called her out. She wasn't simply voting for her because she found Trump worse. That's understandable. She defended or at least tried to deflect the issues with Hillary when just a few months prior, she said things that would make even Cooter or Bill say, "man you're harsh on her."   I don't think this is a new phenomenon. I also don't think it's widespread. Like everything else, access to more and diverse information just makes it possible to hear more about it than before. I think human nature causes people to internalize candidates and/.or elected officials. It's a "if you're critical of my candidate, you're critical of me," kind of thinking.   I don't fault anyone for voting for a candidate that one feels best represents their line of thinking. Or even defending their candidate from detractors. I don't think that is what Dave is talking about here. It's also the flipping of political opinions just because the candidate you voted for or support is supporting certain positions. For example, many conservatives opposed BHO's stimulus, including myself. It didn't work  as promised and we just added more on to the debt. So on the campaign trail, Trump also spoke of a stimulus plan that was even more expensive than BHO's and  those same people not only supported it but are justifying it. In summary, one can vote for a candidate without defending everything that person does
